A wee gem of a course, Carradale Golf Club offers amazing 360 degree views
With stunning panoramas across the Kilbrannan Sound to Arran, Ailsa Craig and on a good day to Ayrshire, our 9 hole golf course has something for every ability - and presents enough of a challenge for even the most experienced players
The sweet spot where high handicappers are not overwhelmed, but good players are punished if they try to overpower the course and miss wide. Carradale nine hole links is studded with outcroppings of rock, which threaten a wild bounce on many holes, most memorably at the difficult par-3 7th. No less than seven of the nine holes are between 200 and 300 yards in length.Tom Doak, Golf Course Architect (July 2016)

Quotes from visitors:
The course is an excellent challenge for all handicappers, one that needs guile to get onto the greens and which will punish the wayward shots. Challenging par 3s are protected by grassy terrain on rocky ground rather than needing bunkers. The par 4s require thought rather than simply the full driver. I particularly liked the 6th and 7th holes but was also taken aback by stunning views to Arran, Ailsa Craig and also to the various delightful bays around Carradale itself. Highly recommended and well laid out.D McCorquodale, Edinburgh (January 2017)
What an amazing hidden gem of a golf course. Played 9 holes with goose bumps all way around, stunning views and an immaculate condition golf course. 5* all day longC Silvester, August 2016
I just have returned from a trip to Carradale from Australia where I needed to tell you how much I enjoyed playing golf at the club. The condition of the course was amazing and the entire experience was some of the best golf experiences I have ever had. Many thanks for the memories, and hope to see you again.C Kirkland, Australia (July 2016)
Thank you for allowing us to share in your beautiful course. The sun shone, the sky was blue & the scenery stunning. The course was immaculate and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of playing.J&A Clarke, North Wales
Having now played your course, you have a little gem. Just wish it was nearer my home! Compliments to your groundsman - superb condition.Stuart, Northants
The best times I had playing in Scotland. The views across the water.... breathtaking and the holes in the meadows ...I met a chap walking his dog whilst I was walking towards green.. He offered me some River of life. And it ..... Refreshed my soul I recorded my only eagle of my life here ....Truly. A special course to me enjoy.M Lisausky, USA (May 2016)
A real gem. Definitely worth a detour on the way to Machrihanish. Plenty of interest and few blind holes. Loved the pudding bowl 6th hole. Good condition and spectacular views of Arran.Colin H (August 2015)
The views of the Kilbrannon sound are quite breathtaking. This links course is quite tight and unforgiving, nevertheless a beautiful challenge. (Round played: Jul 2014 - Score: 43 Handicap: )David L, Oct, 2014
